Swedish EMU for the GDG express service at the private Bergslagernas Järnvägar (BJ). Two units were constructed by ASEA and delivered in 1947. The units were put into service between Gothenburg and Gävle the same year. The top speed was 115 km/h, wich made these trains the fastest in Sweden at the time. In 1948, the BJ railway line and the GDG express service was incorporated into the Swedish State Railways (SJ). Inspired by the train, SJ ordered 6 similar units for use in express services on the main lines. This model shows the original color scheme used by GDG in 1947. #ASEA #Bergslagernas_järnväg #BJ #Dalarna #Electric #EMU #GDG #GDGExpressen #Gävle #Göteborg #SJ #Statens_järnvägar #Sweden #Swedish_State_Railways #Train #Triebwagen #X8 #Xoa #Xoa8
